A Dog - 3 Or 4 Stars Maybe??? Definately Not 5.7 IMDb Stars
2 February 2019 | by fredgfinklemeyerSee all my reviews

02/02/2019 IMDb gives this dog 5.7 stars. It should be more like 3 or4 stars at best. Piss poor acting, uneventful, tired old regurgitated storyline, lotsa vulgar hood chatter from a bunch of big bad turds - wannabe's. Don't waste your time, I tried to watch it twice, it SUCKS. Bon Appetit
